Pellmann opened his program by trying to become the oldest man, by roughly nine years, to record a height in the pole vault. He dislodged the bar three times at 3 feet 1 ¾ inches. “I thought I was in better shape,” he said.

Pellmann became the first centenarian to break 27 seconds in the 100-meter dash

Ardy Riego, an athletic trainer at San Diego Mesa College, massaged Pellmann’s legs before the 100 meters. “All I can say is his body is still functioning like a normal person’s body, which is amazing,” Riego said.

His fellow competitors also sought him out for selfies, including 57-year-old Robert Silva, who said, “You see people that are 100 run, but to see someone that age pole-vault or long jump, that’s another galaxy.”
